Comments about Turkish, Conversational:
It works! Turkish is one of those languages that isn't related to any other, but when my husband and I had a chance to go to Istanbul, we didn't want to go knowing absolutely nothing. So we tried this introductory conversational course--and we actually picked up a bit of the language. Though we didn't end up with a huge vocabulary, we learned enough to have basic communication with people, and the Turks we met were so happy that we were trying. Plus they complimented us on our accents. It really added to our trip. If you're diligent and do the lessons every day, you can't help but learn. Sometimes we repeated the lessons, because the language was so unfamiliar. But it was fun--and now we can't wait to jump into another language and do a comprehensive course. The method is great!
